    i like what you are doing here.
    40k is a serious investment in time and
    is a great vehicle for education and training
    in resource management, competitive and cooperative engagements,
    and as you say decision/game theory.

    indeed, i feel that is the meta-level discourse over mutually constraining rules sets that is the most important.
    this is a crucial skill in a functional democracy,
    and one sadly lacking in most everyone
    including gamers
    that i have ever met…
